Celebrity Baby Alert: 'Always Sunny' Husband-and-Wife Costars Welcome Second Son Leo Grey

Celebrity Baby Alert: 'Always Sunny' Husband-and-Wife Costars Welcome Second Son Leo Grey
Fame/Flynet

Speaking of Leo, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia stars Kaitlin Olson and Rob McElhenney welcomed their second child last Thursday, a baby boy named Leo Grey McElhenney. He joins big brother, Axel Lee, who is 19 months old

Leo has been on the rise over the past couple of decades, ranking at No. 193 in 2010, and with the popular "nicknames-as-given-names" trend, it's catching up to Leonardo, its long form alternate ranked at  No. 150. Leo was also traditionally shortened from Leopold, but that name hasn't been popular in years and Leonard has been on the decline for quite a while. 

The trendiness of Leo was solidified last year when Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem named their son Leo Encians. Mario Batali, NASCAR driver Jeff Gordon and actor Jim True-Frost all have sons named Leo as well. 

Leo's middle name, Grey, also follows the same trend, in a sense. Greyson has become a very popular first name, shooting up the charts and now ranked at No. 249. Grey also follows another trend as it was typically used as a surname. 

Between Axel Lee and Leo Grey, the couple seems to favor names that are short, but not so sweet. Both names have a masculine feel to them.

What do you think of Leo Grey? What do you think of Axel Lee and Leo Grey as a sibset?

I do prefer "Grey" when it's a name and "gray" when it's a color.
